Mastopexy: Breast lift surgery

Breast lift surgery, often referred to as mastopexy, treats sagging breasts, asymmetry, loss of shape or volume and stretched or drooping areolas to give the breasts a more youthful, perky and attractive shape, proportion and balance.

While ageing and heredity are perhaps the most common causes of sagging breasts, other factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight fluctuations can also contribute.

What breast lift does

Dr Elias, an aesthetic and plastic surgeon in Geneva, is much in demand by women suffering from sagging breasts. His expertise in mastopexy or breast lift combined with his dedication to producing natural results means that Dr Elias uses advanced surgical techniques that offer the shortest residual scar.

Typically, mastopexy is performed to:

  • Lift sagging breasts to a higher position on the chest, creating a more youthful look.
  • Reduce the size of the areolas (the darker pigmented skin around the nipples).
  • Correct the appearance of downward-pointing nipples.
  • Remove excess skin in patients due to pregnancy, major weight fluctuations or ageing.

After breast lift surgery?

After undergoing breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, you can expect to immediately see much fuller breasts, with much higher nipples and younger-looking breast tissue. Many patients return to their daily activities within a week. Once the healing process is complete and optimal results have been achieved, you can look forward to younger, more symmetrical and attractive breasts for a long time to come. Imagine no longer being a slave to your bra!
